Have you or someone you love been injured in a boating accident? Oftentimes, these crashes are caused by negligent boat operators, making them legally liable for the damages sustained by accident victims. You need an advocate who can help you reach a resolution that is fair and just when dealing with insurance companies. The Law Offices of B. Shannon Saunders, P.A. has over 20 years of legal experience ready to put to work for you.
Boating Accidents in Florida
Currently, no age requirement exists in the state to operate a boat. Only personal watercraft such as jet skis have restrictions for this. Boating licenses and mandatory boating safety courses are also not required for those over the age of 30. This means that accidents can occur due to uneducated, improperly trained, and untrained operators.
Common causes of boating accidents include:
- Boating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Inexperienced boaters
- Inattentive boaters
- Improper lookout
- Violation of navigational rules/regulations
- Equipment failure
Such accidents can lead to drowning, head trauma, fractures, organ damage, and more. Those who have suffered such injuries due to negligence may seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. Make sure you have an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you fight for the compensation to which you are entitled.
